VU22671 - Use test instruments in the electrotechnology industry

Unit code: VU22671 | Study level: TAFE


This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to identify, safely connect and use analog and digital test instruments to test a range of extra low voltage (ELV) components and circuits.


For Melbourne campuses

Assessment tasks will be designed to reinforce and extend knowledge and skill competence within set and controlled parameters in accordance with each unit’s learning outcomes and performance criteria requirements, including the setting of work based practical application tasks designed to provide evidence of competence outcomes, within periodic and scheduled timelines.

Students will be expected to demonstrate the following required skills:

  • set up and use a range of analog and digital test instruments commonly applied in the electrotechnology industry to test ELV components and circuits;
  • demonstrate safe working habits when testing ELV components and circuits;
  • read and interpret operating instructions for electrical testing instruments, and;
  • read and interpret test results to determine serviceability of ELV components and circuits.

Required reading

The qualified trainer and assessor will provide teaching and learning materials as required in the form of workbooks produced by the Polytechnic and/or via the Polytechnic e-learning system.
